When Everything Is On the Edge of Breaking


Improvisation for the complete myriad of sound-makers, invented instruments, automata, video installation etc… I worked on during my residency at LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE

Last day in residency

Well, it was the last day, so, at some point, I decided to push my prototypes a bit further, see where they could break. Well, they did not. So I made this improvisation, and probably because of the stress I just put them under, half my prototypes broke during this improvisation!

19 mirrors, 19 servo motors, 1 LED projector, SSC-32, Teensy, surface speaker/transducer

Saws played with solenoids played via MIDI, with a QuNeo, using an interface I designed during the residency.

Flexamaton on the left - flexed sheet metal with a slinky 

Flexamaton on the right - flexed sheet metal with a infinite bow (like a motorised hurdy-gurdy)

Step motors for the two Flexamata controlled via MIDI, with a Korg Nano, using a interface I designed during the residency.

Metal harp that I designed for Play; (that is actually more like a thumb piano)

A heatsink

A Flex-Helixophone (on the right) flex sheep metal with a slinky 

Live electronics, using a old patch of mine that I control with a SoftStep and a QuNexus
